Drainage Air Pressure Testing in Hampshire

Plumbing and Drainage Air Pressure Testing in Hampshire
Drainage air pressure testing in Hampshire is one way to test new plumbing and drainage systems before they go live. It’s much less messy to discover leaks using air than it is to use water. Air leaks are often around joints or other weak areas. We can repair these issues before they become real problems. Here’s how the process works.
Air Pressure Testing Plumbing
• We close all water spigots and valves. Air would leak out through open valves or spigots in sinks, baths, showers, and toilets. We need to make sure everything is airtight before the testing can be successful.
• We pressurise the pipes. We don’t put enough pressure to damage the pipes or other components of the system. The city water pressure will be similar to the amount of air pressure we use.
• We monitor the pipes for 5 minutes. A very small amount of pressure loss is acceptable, but pressure loss often means leaks in the pipes. We will search for leaks and repair them if we have too much pressure loss during the 5 minute test.
Air Pressure Testing Drainage
The process for air pressure testing the drainage pipes is very similar, so we’ll simply outline the basic steps.
• We close or otherwise block all drains.
• We pressurise the pipes.
• We monitor the pipes for 5 minutes.
Plumbing and Drainage Repairs
Air leaks in the plumbing and drainage system means that there would also be water leaks. It’s best to repair them before any serious damage is done and before water flows through the pipes. This type of troubleshooting and testing allows us to fully test and inspect the plumbing and drainage system before the property passes inspection and becomes habitable.
